novel by Lev Grossman. Here's a quick synopsis: After being recruited to a secretive academy, a group of students discover that the magic they read about as children is very real and more dangerous than they ever imagined. But will getting hooked on the thrill of magic distract them from honing their powers when they need them most?
I saw a preview a while ago and it peaked my interest. I was told that it's Harry Potter for adults so I figured it was right up my alley. Well after watching episode one, it might be to adult for me. Anyways I'm getting ahead of myself.. I watched S1 Ep1 "Unauthorized Magic" A smart, geeky and socially awkward young man is amazed to realize that
Magic he's so passionate about is actually real, when he's unexpectedly
invited to attend a college of magic in New York.
Only downside to watching this a month before it premieres in January is that episode one ended on a cliffhanger.. now I must wait until January 25th to watch the conclusion (luckily the are showing episode 1 and 2 that night). So stay tuned for further reviews.
